Raspberry Pi and JA Kemp move to iconic Station Road HQs
Brookgate has announced two lettings at 30 Station Road, a 22,500 sq ft office block at the heart of CB1, the new city quarter based around Cambridge railway station.
The deals mean that the three-storey building is now fully let following Birketts’ move to 22 Station Road, Brookgate’s recently completed office development.
Education charity Raspberry Pi Foundation has agreed a five-year lease on a 7,060 sq ft suite on the second floor. The organisation specialises in teaching computer programming to children and adults using a tiny and affordable computer.
They will be joined by JA Kemp, a law firm specialising in trade marks and patenting, which will occupy a 1,675 sq ft suite also on the second floor.
Ranked in tier 1 by The Legal 500, JA Kemp is one of the largest UK and European Patent and Trade Mark Attorney firms, with offices in London, Oxford and Munich. The firm boasts over 60 science and technology graduates including at least 25 PhDs. It covers all areas of science & technology.
Other occupiers at 30 Station Road include Alert Me, Cambridge University and Stone King. The businesses form part of a major business district at CB1 which also features a cluster of leading companies including Microsoft, Deloitte, Thales and Mott MacDonald.
A spokesperson for Brookgate said: “Raspberry Pi Foundation and JA Kemp are a fantastic addition to the vibrant business community at CB1.
“This is proving to be popular location for both growing and well-established firms looking to take advantage of Cambridge’s thriving economy, skilled labour force, amenities and connectivity.”
Parties were advised by Bidwells, Savills, Dodson Jones and Farebrother.
